MTN Explore 88 + SkinsSALOMON
Men's MTN Explore 88
The MTN Explore is the narrowest of the MTN range from Salomon the 88 is a great choice for "normal" Scottish touring. The 88 under foot width combined with a Karuba 3 D wood core allows this ski to perform admirably on the descent yet is not too sketchy skinning up a wind scoured ridge.
The ski construction would not look out of place on a resort ski. The ski is cambered under foot with rocker in the tip. The edges have Salomon's total Edge reinforcement which acts like a mini side wall from tip to tail. there are ABS sidewalls in the binding area to increase edge hold. CFX superfiber blend runs throughout the ski increasing the power transfer and combined with the Koroyd tip greatly reduces tip deflection and vibration.
The ski is reasonably light 1305G in a 177cm.
We would recommend either a full pin binding like the Marker Alpinist to give a great lightweight set up. or The Shift if you are going to use this in a resort.
